Homophobia is rampant within politics, and especially within many sectors of the Republican Party. While many younger members are more than willing to support LGBT rights, they do so often either from the closet- not wanting to openly support LGBT rights- or at great expense to their potential political careers. The problem becomes that the opponents of LGBT rights have little to no actual argument, and it may be time for those Republicans who support LGBT rights to say that openly and adamantly rather than just playing along because they support the misguided ideals that form the rest of the Republican Party.
Pam’s House Blend brought up the rhetoric of one state Senator Dan Swecker, who opposes the update to the Uniform Parentage Act of 2002. The bill, in Washington State, is suppose to clarify and expand “the rights and obligations of state registered domestic partners and other couples related to parentage.”
Here is what Swecker wrote:
"HB 1267 addresses the fact that in our society today, the traditional family with one mother and one father is slowly being eroded. The natural way to have children with one father and one mother has given way to in virto fertilization, same sex parents, and surrogacy. The bill attempts to clarify who and when a person is considered a parent, and who has the rights to a child."
